Sam Smith has today released his highly anticipated new single Too Good At Goodbyes via Capitol Records worldwide.
The track is the first new music from Sam since the release of his number one James Bond theme song Writing’s On The Wall in 2015. Written with longstanding collaborator Jimmy Napes and Stargate, Too Good At Goodbyes once again demonstrates Sam’s unique vocal range and emotive songwriting talents. On the soulful torch song, he reflects “This song is about a relationship I was in and it's basically about getting good at getting dumped. It's been a long while since I've put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come.”
In announcing the single, Capitol worked with Twitter to create an automated response tweet. Users who ‘liked’ Sam's tweet were sent one of five possible lyric GIFs, instantly creating a huge amount of shares and retweets.
To give fans a taste of what is to come and celebrate his return, Sam will be performing a series of intimate shows in London, New York, Los Angeles and Berlin - a rare opportunity to catch the global superstar in such intimate setting.
It’s been over three years since Sam Smith’s debut album In The Lonely Hour was released, and since then he has become one of the biggest acts on the planet with over 12 million global album sales, a number one UK album, five number one UK singles and an array of impressive awards, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, three Brit Awards, three Billboard Music Awards, four Grammy’s and six MOBO Awards, among others.
